My Students

My students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds and educational levels. Because I teach middle school, many of my students are at a pivotal point in their education. In sixth grade, many of them are learning how to study and retain learning materials for the first time. Whether auditory, visual, or tactile learners, it is my desire to create a classroom environment that inspires them to learn.

My students include five Learning Strategies classes with 110+ sixth graders.

A variety of reading and writing levels are represented in my classroom. It is my goal to assist students by introducing a variety of learning strategies, as well as providing them fun and engaging ways to learn. From the advanced to the struggling student, it is my goal to make learning fun through writing activities and group activities. These are skills that I hope they will learn to use for a lifetime!

My Project

My students will greatly benefit from these materials during class instruction. The Scholastic Scope magazines include topics that interest students and provide current information that students are excited to write about. The additional supplies will be used for group work and direct classroom interactive activities.

With this project, fun reading material and writing activities will cultivate an enjoyable and exciting learning environment.

In middle school, it is very important to keep students engaged and learning fun! The requested project materials will be used throughout the year. Scholastic magazines will provide fun and exciting reading material for students. The headphones will be used so students can hear their instructional videos each week. In addition, the markers will be used for interactive lessons in which students will write on dry erase boards. With your support, you can help make this project a reality for all my students!
